Zoe Oreck - 3-Jul-2007 - Katrina's Jewish Voices




Zoe Oreck, the eighteen-year-old daughter of Julie Wise Oreck (also interviewed in this collection) and a resident of New Orleans, was interviewed on July 3, 2007 by Rosalind Hinton.  She describes her experience being displaced from her beloved home in the Uptown neighborhood to a hotel in Houston, her adjustments to a new, temporary life there, and her eventual return.  She discusses how Katrina changed her world view on government, community, and spirituality, and describes Jewish social life in New Orleans from a teenager’s perspective.

This oral history was conducted by Rosalind Hinton for a joint project by the Jewish Women's Archive partnered with the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) to capture the voices and experiences of members of the Jewish communities of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast communities during Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.
